GreatSchools Rating

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

About the test

Beginning in 2013-2014, the New York State Regents Examination was replaced with Common Core aligned standards. The new Regents Common Core exams test students in math and English. Scores of 65 demonstrate partial mastery of standards and are sufficient to graduate. Scores of 75 or above demonstrate college- and career- readiness and are aspirational scores. No one is required to pass the Common Core to graduate until students who started ninth grade prior to 2013-2014 graduate. Until that time, students who started ninth grade prior to 2013-2014 have the option to take the old Regents exam in addition to the Common Core exam.

About the test

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests. In 2013-2014, the Common Core Regents Exam began replacing the English Language and Math portions of the Regents Examination. Students who entered ninth grade prior to 2013-2014 will be able to take the Common Core or the Regents exam in English Language and Math until those subjects are phased out of the exam.

About the test

Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2014-2015 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2014-15 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
